    I was green, but only because the stupid impeller on my snowblower is busted.

    Well, when they make a solar powered snow blower, that costs $700, I'll go green like the dude with the shovel. Until then, it's my Ariens or bust.

    My 12 year-old Toro 720 finally sh!t the bed (I think) right when I finished snow-blowing today. We had drifts of 20" and some of the yard was blown bare. What a brutal winter! I hope it's done snowing because the next storm I'm shoveling (or paying a neighborhood kid to ....yeah, right!)

    Anyways...I burned about 3/4 od a gallon of gas.

    Consider a solar hot water system to heat your driveway and sidewalks.

    Was the electricity made by a non fossil fuel burning power plant? Don't worry global warming is cyclical and not man made anyway.

    Honestly I think this power is coming from hydro.

    My buddy has his solar panels sched to install next week. $32,000 solar elec system for charging the car. After goverment rebates and tax credits it will cost him about $4,000 for the system.

    Suck. Damned if those Toros aren't reliable things. I'm 29, and I have the Toro my parents bought the year I was born. It's definitely in its golden years, but the thing still hums right along. It's not exactly a snowblower, but rather a snowthrower. So it's small and has scoops attached to an axle, which is powered by the engine. This is why it's more impressive to me - the thing should have crapped a long time ago considering the load it's seen.

    Buy Toro!

    I have a Toro ... I swore I would never get a snowblower. I really never minded shoveling snow ... it's good exercise. I still shovel if it's 6 inches or less ... for the exercise. But my back has been bad for many years ... so 5 years ago on the morning of a big snow I went to my local Home Depot in Providence and bought the last one they had at 7:05 AM. It runs great ... starts up by the 2nd or 3rd pull ... Toro is a good brand IMO.

    I agree, I shovel to about that amount as well. You're right, the exercise is good. And luckily, I don't have a bad back so I can really go fast and get a workout.

    But the piles at the end of my driveway after the plow are too demoralizing to deal with on days like today.
